UNITED STATES NEWS
** Kentucky police in Falmouth have arrested an area man after he led police on a high speed chase, broke into an EMT’s home, assaulted her, and held her at gunpoint. WLWT (Amanda Kelly/March 2) said the Friday afternoon incident occurred as medic Cherie Sullivan was recuperating at home from a February accident in which a car hit the ambulance she was riding in. According to the news site, suspect Charles Bruener, 31, began his escapade by nabbing a car at a gas station to evade police who were searching for him based on outstanding warrants. Bruener travelled along KY-330 before crashing into Sullivan’s home and asking her for help. Once inside, he demanded keys to her car, threatened her with a gun, and beat her. Police nabbed Bruener a short time later. He is expected to be charged with burglary, assault, possessing firearms under disability, possession of drugs, auto theft x 2, endangerment of a police officer, and wanton endangerment x 6. There is no word on his next court date.
